Trying out a new fresh blog theme, I hope you like it!
Here's a little summer training update:
I've started running with the Halifax Road Hammers on the regular now. Coach Lee has developed a training plan for me for the Chicago Marathon and I get to run with some of my super speedy friends more often! The workouts are challenging. If I read them on paper and then ran them alone, I'd probably pass out or give up. But when I'm running with a huge pack of other fast feet, somehow I get it done!
|This was taken after an intense hill session at Point Pleasant Drive...in crazy heat and humidity of course. Sorry Charlotte for cutting your face out a bit!!!|
Oh boy...when will I learn to take care of myself?
Is anyone else as excited as I am to get a copy of Run Fast, Cook Fast, Eat Slow??? I've already pre-ordered my copy and I tried a sneak peek recipe that was released in Runner's World. Thai Quinoa salad...mmm!
More training talk:
One of the new to me things that the Road Hammers do is to incorporate a workout into the long run and you know how I usually run long on Sundays? Well, now it's Saturdays. I'm enjoying this immensely because there's no pressure or rush to get up early on Sunday. I can usually sleep a bit longer since my Sunday runs are usually between 8-11km at recovery pace.
|This was Tash and I after doing a Threshold run in the middle of a long run. We sweat buckets but were so happy to be done! Thanks to Natalia (missing from the photo) for pulling us along.|
|We were pretty pumped about it, lol. Michael is always to thorough in staging our post-run pics!|
|Tim Chesnutt always does a stellar job at race photos!|
I took this photo at the start of the six miler.
|SO MANY FAST FEET IN THIS PIC! Hey, there's me in the shadow, lol!|
|Thanks Nicole for the photo!|
Next up is the Chase the Pace Mile at the SMU track on Saturday August 11th. Hope to see you there!
Thanks for visiting the running rambles of GGR. Have a beautiful day!
